This week we have three very interesting film releases for Wednesday January 12, and Friday, January 14, that movie lovers will definitely enjoy. The Pink Cloud, a Brazilian subtitled film talking about a world similar to the one we live in today, although it was filmed in the pre COVID 2017. Quite a prophecy. Then, we have Shattered, a thriller that will keep you on the edge of your seat until the very end. And finally, from Marvel Studios, Eternals will be released digitally on the 12th of this month.
Shattered (In Select Theaters and On Demand on January 14, 2022/ On DVD and Blu-ray February 22, 2022)
In the tradition of Fatal Attraction and Basic Instinct comes this dazzling action-thriller starring Academy Award® nominee John Malkovich (RED) and Frank Grillo (Avengers: Endgame). After lonely tech millionaire Chris (Cameron Monaghan, “Shameless”) encounters charming, sexy Sky (Lilly Krug), passion grows between them – and when he’s injured, she quickly steps in as his nurse. But Sky’s odd behavior makes Chris suspect that she has more sinister intentions, especially when Sky’s roommate is found dead from mysterious causes.

Pink Cloud: Official Selection: Sundance, 2021 (In Select Theaters January 14, 2022 / On Digital/VOD March 1, 2022)
Life changes on a dime when a toxic and mysterious pink cloud appears across the globe, forcing the world indoors immediately and indefinitely. In Brazil, Giovana (Renata de Lélis) finds herself stuck in her apartment with a man she just met (Eduardo Mendonça). But their carefree one-night stand grows into a years-long relationship complicated by a child and increasingly divergent worldviews as they try to imagine a future from the depths of a potentially never-ending lockdown. Written in 2017 and shot in 2019, this stunning, slow-burn sci-fi debut from writer/director luli Gerbase is both an eerily prescient reflection of our reality and a cathartic exploration of hope and despair, love and fear, and the boundlessness and limits of our ability as humans to adapt.
Written and Directed by: Iuli Gerbase
Cast: Renata de Lélis, Eduardo Mendonça, Kaya Rodrigues, Girley Brasil Paes, Helena Becker y Lívia Perrone Pires
